The weekend had Drumheller busy with tourists and visitors a like, including sea cadets from Medicine Hat and Red Deer.
The cadets thought it would be a great idea to come to Drumheller for some canoeing.
"(We thought) we'd bring cadets down from Red Deer and Medicine Hat and get them involved," explained Acting Sub-Lieutenant Gabriel Aiello. "That's where they came from and we figured, let's do something with Drumheller local and we decided on canoeing."
The cadets had planned on staying at the lions campground but that didn't go as planned.
"Unfortunately, due to the mudslide, we had to find new accommodations," Aiello continued. "So we stayed at the Drumheller Navy League building."
The cadets didn't a mudslide and the spoiling of a plan get in the way of their planned activities.
"They did canoeing in the morning and in the late after noon, they'll be doing leadership activities." concluded Aiello.
The cadets finished up their weekend trip on a good note said Aiello, learning how teamwork can prevent a canoe from flipping into the water.
